Our Labour of Love is Local

We're lovingly building up British-made brands in every village, town and city from John O' Groats to Land's End, so we can save our stellar handcrafting skills, support our gloriously diverse communities, shine a (very bright but energy efficient) light on all-things-local, and tiptoe onto UK high streets with the daintiest carbon footprint you ever did see.

British Brand Accelerator

You’ve got a vision for where you want to take your British-made brand, but right now it feels like an impossible task to realise your dream business... By matchmaking founders with factories, we help brand-building people (like you) connect with people who can make your products for you, reducing the time it takes to launch a UK-made product by half.

Want your small creative business to hurtle from plan to production faster than a high-speed rail?
